Since launching her bid to become New York's senator, Hillary Clinton says she's been booed by crowds so many times that she's now gotten used to it.
Asked about an incident where she was booed off the stage at Paul McCartney's Oct. 20 concert to honor firefighters and police killed in the Twin Tower attacks, Mrs. Clinton told the New York Times Sunday Magazine, "I've gotten used to being in situations in political life, either vicariously or on my own, where that just happens sometimes."
Clinton described the humiliating heckling episode as "part of the healing process" in the wake of the World Trade Center attack.
"(The firefighters and cops) can blow off steam any way they want to," she added. "They've earned it."
The former first lady has also been publicly booed at New York City's St. Patrick's and Israeli Day parades as well as at her own New Year's Eve Millenium celebration on Washington's Mall.
Clinton campaign biographer Beth Harpaz, author of the book, "The Girls on the Van," recently told Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly that Sen. Clinton hasn't attended any funerals for constituents killed in the 9/11 attacks because she's afraid she'll be booed.
And while she wasn't heckled or jeered during her first visit to Ground Zero on Sept. 14, one on-the-scene source told NewsMax.com that firemen and cops refused to shake her hand.
The Times profile also revealed that Mrs. Clinton's obnoxious eye-rolling during President Bush's address to Congress just days after the 9/11 attacks was more typical than previously known.
"Her aides insisted it had nothing to do with the president," reported Timesman Frank Bruni.
"But when I later saw her at a Senate budget committee hearing, she silently and reflexively shook her head and rolled her eyes almost every time one of the economists who were testifying mentioned Bush's tax cut."
I'm sure she's got used to being married to a philandering,low-life scumbag also.
But as with 9/11,we will never forget!:
House Approves Articles Alleging Perjury, Obstruction

The House of Representatives impeached the president of the United States yesterday for only the second time in American history, charging William Jefferson Clinton with "high crimes and misdemeanors" for lying under oath and obstructing justice to cover up an Oval Office affair with a young intern.
Good. I'm tempted to go to NY for St Paddy's Day to add to the number of Irish booing her.
But no one else, except Richard Gere, got booed -- and in Gere's case it's what was said. Someone should ask Hillary why specifically booing her is so therapeutic. I mean, we know why, but I'd love to hear her try to answer that.
And they pardoned them - against the strong objections of the prosecutors and law enforcement.
I wonder if that might explain why some cops and firefighters do not cheer for her.
It is her that needs healing, not them. She is very sick.
I hope she runs, and I REALLY hope she pays a visit to Livingston County, or even here in demorat Lansing. I'll get everyone I can to just run her out of my state.
This will be so much fun, and will make my fundraising job(if I'm still MCRGO PAC treasurer) SO EASY! :D.
I'll be in NYC on vacation for St. Paddy's Day. I hadn't thought of the added attraction of maybe getting the opportunity to boo Hillary. This adds more stuff to anticipate besides the parade and some Broadway shows.
"And ultimately he just started turning to interns for sex instead."
